CCAR has a member volunteers who helps to provide services that enhance the community and support the overall quality of life for our community.  We do this by providing opportunities to assist our community through various charitable organizations.  Organizations we have helped are American Red Cross, American Heart Association, Helping Hand, and Habitat for Humanity.
